There are risks associated with investing, including possible loss of principal.
Foreign investing involves special risks, such as risk of loss from currency fluctuation
or political or economic uncertainty. Funds focusing on a single sector generally
experience greater price volatility. Investments in emerging, offshore or frontier
markets are generally less liquid and less efficient than investments in developed
markets and are subject to additional risks, such as risks of adverse governmental
regulation, intervention and political developments. Please read the Fund’s prospectus
for specific details regarding the Fund’s risk profile.
